Associate & Lifetime Members

The West Virginia Press Association has two membership categories in addition to the general memberships of WV’s daily and weekly newspapers.

  • Lifetime Memberships are bestowed on individuals who have made outstanding contributions with their service to the newspaper industry in West Virginia.
  • Associate Memberships are made available to individuals, companies or organizations that don’t work directly for a newspaper, but depend on the newspaper industry for advertising and communications.
